Once airfare and hotels are covered, the most costly part of vacationing is the food. And when traveling with a family, it can become very expensive to satisfy everyone's hunger. Walt Disney World is offering guests the opportunity to ease the stress of picking up the bill at the end of each meal. For guests of Disney Resort hotels, two free dining plan options are available when you purchase a 5-night/6-day Magic Your Way room and ticket package.

The first, the "Disney Dining Plan," includes one quick-service meal, one snack, and one table-service meal per person, per night. You can choose from over 100 Walt Disney World Resort restaurants, like Rainforest Café, Planet Hollywood, Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner, and many more. It also includes a refillable drink mug for each guest. The second option, Disney's "Quick-Service Dining Plan," includes two quick service meals and one snack per person per night, as well as the refillable drink mug. In this plan, guests can choose from over 50 restaurants throughout Disney resorts, like the Lotus Blossom Café in Epcot, or Pinocchio Village Haus in Magic Kingdom.

For example, if a family of four books a 5-night/6-day Magic Your Way package standard room at a Disney Value Resort (the less expensive hotels, like the All-Star Movies Resort), it comes out to just $69 per person, per day for hotel, Magic Your Way park ticket and meals. The 6-day park ticket, which allows for one theme park per day, is already $260 per person, so the savings are tremendous. The plan does not include tips or alcoholic drinks. Book by May 18, 2012 for vacations between August 25 and September 27, 2012.
